Hi rafagirl....

My vote for best winery tour and delicious lunch with all the bells and whistles....plus drop-dead views would be the Verrazzano Winery. Check it out at www.verrazzano.com/en/index.php

Good Luck

We loved Ricasoli at Castello Di Brolio:

We also loved the cellar tour and lunch with food/wine pairings at Avignonesi: (it's on the border of Cortona and Montepulciano)

Rafagirl,

I suppose that , when in Montepulciano, you will be interested in local wine ( Nobile di Montepulciano).

Verrazzano and Castello di Brolio produce very nice wine, but it's a Chianti ( nothing to do with Montepulciano wine).

In Montepulciano :

- in old town: the historical cellar of Contucci (www.contucci.it) or Cantine del Redi (www.cantinadelredi.com) worth a visit

- in the counrtyside: the most prestigious producers of Nobile are Tenuta Valdipiatta (www.valdipiatta.it), Poderi Boscarelli (www.poderiboscarelli.com), Poliziano (www.carlettipoliziano.com), Avignonesi .

Ciao!
